Summer Camp Series: Asthma
This is the last of the Summer Camp Series, this time we’ll talk asthma camps. There are by far more camps for children and teens with asthma and I’m not sure why that is. Perhaps because there have been more cases of children with asthma in the past than those diagnosed with food allergies or eczema. These numbers are changing, so I hope to see more food allergy and eczema camps pop up in future years.
Since there are simply too many camps to list, here are a few organizations that provide their own lists of camps for kids with asthma:
- American Lung Association – their list easy to view in one pass, so simply type in your state followed by “camp” and you should be able to quickly see if there is a camp in your area. Ex, “Georgia camp.”
- The Consortium on Children’s Asthma Camps
- My Summer Camps
Are you sending your asthmatic child to camp this summer? Has your child attended camp before? Was it an awesome experience for them?
